An isolated polynucleotide that encodes a polypeptide of a specific sequence (or a fragment/variant thereof) that confers resistance to powdery mildew in a plant (apple). : In New Zealand and Australia this includes genes with at least 70% identity to the described sequences from apple. In the US this has been narrowed to 95% variants of those sequences. Our European examination has restricted the resistance polypeptides to those in Rosaceae only. The scientists indicate that the narrower scope remains commercially viable as the polypeptides of interest all fall within this scope.
